Come home to Humsafar! Where your identity is a reason for pride, not a reason to hide.




“The Humsafar Trust is the oldest LGBTQ organization in India. It was founded by three gay men at a time when there was no talk and no national level movement for LGBTQ human rights. It is one of the leading organizations covering the spectrum of sexual minorities in India.”


  • Personally Humsafar has been a family to me, a true companion in journey where I have met people I hold close to my heart, get inspired by. Professionally, Humsafar is one of the few few organisations that has created an ethos that works best for the pursuit of equal rights. You can compare this ethos with that of a family, where despite being a trouble child, or having siblings that make your life hell, or parents who seem to have all the unreasonable expectations from you making you wish to rebel, you can count on it to be there for you during some of the worst phases of your life and stand by your side for some of the most meaningful struggles you decide to undertake. There is a method in the madness here and at the end of the day, every one of us find a space to be ourselves.

  • I know that each one of you at Humsafar has strived very hard to reach this enviable position. I look at it as a small baby which required lots of attention from friends & colleagues in early eighties.. Starting from working at sion hospital, you brought so many feathers to your cap to introduce a well-set clinic at your office. So many research projects, annual surveillances, and important ICMR Projects. You are grown-up now . With maturity comes responsibility which you have accepted in humility. God bless Humsafar!!!!!! I will always be by your side.
